CASH RUN

Greeks Stock Up on Cash, Supplies

Greeks are stuffing their wallets with cash and stocking up on provisions ahead of Sunday’s election, panicked that the vote will force them out of the euro zone. Banks told Reuters that citizens were withdrawing up to €800 million, or $1 billion, daily in preparation for the worst amid rumors of anti-austerity parties leading in the polls. While it’s now illegal to publish polls ahead of the election, party officials have reportedly been leaking “secret polls” in what appears to be an attempt to improve their standing. The EU and IMF have warned that Greece must adhere to the conditions of the bailout deal or risk being pushed out. Last week, Greek officials said they could run out of money as soon as July.
